ICMA has been tracking green, social and sustainability bonds issued since 2016 and since February 2021 has also been tracking sustainability-linked bonds.
This database lists the issuers who have publicly disclosed their external review reports, or who have completed the relevant templates or forms (see next tab 'Templates for issuers'), in accordance with the recommendations of the Principles.
For information related to the financial features of the issuance or to the impact reports, it is recommended to consult the website of the issuer (relevant link provided for each issuer listed here).
Using the tabs above, users can access the full list or view by jurisdiction or alphabetically indexed. The Advanced Search tab allows you to refine your search by issuer, country, jurisdiction and external review provider or you can use the Fast Track Search above to search by issuer.
This database faithfully reproduces the category (green, social, sustainability or sustainability-linked) determined by the issuer without requalification.
Please note that this database is not updated "in real time" but on a regular basis, depending on the information transmitted or collected.
Issuers and external review providers are encouraged to verify that the references, including website links, are up-to-date.
The purpose of the Database is to provide a holistic list of issuers that have issued bonds aligned with the Principles. Investors and other market participants reference this database for access to market wide issuance of green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds that are GBP/SBP/SBG/SLBP aligned.
Issuers wishing to be listed on the database must complete and forward to the secretariat, the relevant template and form (see below), and/or must have made publicly available their external review reports.
Note to Issuers:
Pursuant to the GBP and the SBP, the use of a summary, which reflects the main characteristics of a GSS Bond or a GSS Bond programme and illustrates its key features in alignment with the four core components of the Principles, may help inform market participants. This contributes to market transparency and clarifies issuers’ alignment with the Principles.
Issuers are thus encouraged to complete the templates for all programs or transactions for which they wish to signal alignment with the GBP/SBP/SBG/SLBP recommendations.
The Information Template enables GSS and sustainability-linked bond issuers to publicly confirm their alignment with the Principles:
